Unmanned Aircraft are prohibited in all National Parks
Unmanned aircraft make the coolest videos! But they are banned from use at Canaveral National Seashore by federal law (36 CFR 1.5 to prohibit the launching, landing, or operation of unmanned aircraft). Flying them in this area can mean much more than getting a pretty video. Being caught flying one can land someone banned from the park. We are a border area for one of the nations biggest rocket launching areas at Kennedy Space Center. It may be viewed as a threat to national security. So please keep them at home. Bring your camera and leave only footprints.
Here is a great article that explains in detail why "all" National Parks have banned the use of drones, https://www.nps.gov/…/unmanned-aircraft-in-the-national-par…
Unmanned aircraft can be detected remotely from Kennedy Space Center. https://www.unmannedsystemstechnology.com/…/drone-detectio…/
